  Still Annoyed with Your PC? Fight Back
Subject:   Disable capslock? What about Windows Start button?

OK. I play games like WarCraft III, which is only full screen. I have to use the shift key for some commands, and often I accidently tap the Windows start key.


I go to Windows, switch back. Several memory swapping moments later I get back into the game only to discover they whiped out my forces, or something bad.


The Windows Start key has been the most annoying thing I have ever introduced ever!!!! I never ever used it ever. I just click on the start button. :-(

    easy to do with a Registry hack:

    Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Key: System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
    Name: Scancode Map
    Data Type: REG_BINARY
    Value: 00000000000000000300000000005BE000005CE000000000
